Preview, crochet cakes and cookies

June 30, 2011 · 0 comments


This is just a unretouched photo from a project I am working on at the moment, sooner or later it will end up in a book with patterns so anyone with skill and patience can make these cookies (and cakes, and ice creams etc).

My job is to make the stuff look good, and it has been really fun to work with the lighting and setups to achieve that.


It all started a couple of years ago when I shoot some amigurumis in my photo studio for my friends making them as a hobby.

Earlier this year I talked to one of my clients, a book publisher, and they mentioned that they were working on a book about crochet cakes and cookies. When I said that I would be the perfect guy for it, and showed them the amigurumi photos I had taken, is was an easy sell.

Here is how I did the lighting setup for the dog above:

As soon as I am finished with the cakes and cookies, I will try to make a post on how I did it. It was not all studio photography involved, we managed to find a day it didn’t rain so we could take some photos outside as well.


Will post more as soon as I can.
